My System Specs


mmkay im just going to say this first: you may want to look into the Intel Xeon E3-1230/1240 V2's for a cpu, im not sure of the i7 3770's price but the xeon's should be cheaper and perform similarly.

since you are not overclocking, the range of motherboards you might be interested in becomes a lot wider. I would ask are you interested in ATX (standard) or Micro ATX (shortened) form factor motherboards. This is important because it also puts a guideline for what cases to check out.


- ASRock Z77 Pro4
- ASRock Z77 Pro3
- ASRock Z75 Pro3
- ASRock Z77 Extreme3
- MSI Z77A-G43
- MSI Z77A-G45

For mATX

- ASRock Z77 Pro4-M

Ram (you want at least 8gb either in 1x8gb or 2x4gb)

- Corsair Vengeance
- Kingston Hyper X Blu/Genesis
- G.Skill Ripjaws X

SSD (you really need more than 480mb unless you meant GB then you will probably oonly need between 64-256 GB)

- Mushkin Chronos
- Samsung 840 series
- Crucial M4
- OCZ Vertex 3 or 4

Radeon HD 7970 (you can easily do with a 7950 though)

- Gigabyte
- Sapphire
- Powercolor

Cpu heatsink (quiet is key)

- Corsair h60, h80i, h100i
- Antec Kuhler h20 620

Power Supply (650 watts without crossfire 850w With)

- Corsair HX series
- Enermax Modu87+

and thats all my brain can process for now, ill be back later
